Why PEI?

Festivals + Events


In spring, things really start to heat up on the Island; the Ceilidh at the Irish Hall begins in May, and the College of Piping in Summerside hosts the annual Highland Gathering. Then, it is pretty well non-stop party time until October, so be sure you are ready for an entertaining vacation when you plan your Island visit.

Besides all the wonderful annual events, watch for some newer activities such as: Island Fusion in spring; Fall Flavours in September; the Jazz & Blues Festival; the Cavendish Beach Music Festival featuring many of the best country artists; garden concerts and even a ceilidh on the water! Here theatre productions abound at the Victoria Playhouse, Charlottetown Festival, Montgomery Theatre, and the Kings Playhouse to mention a few. Did we forget anything? Actually, a lot.
